    Superb

    We thought the rooms were lovely and the staff helpful and the breakfast excellent

    We wanted to use the sauna but it wasn't working unfortunately

    Very good

    The staff, from the reception to housekeeping, were friendly and helpful even when, in the latter case, a language barrier presented itself. The reception was particularly on top of things, and at all hours.

    Good

    Very large room with modern furniture. Immaculately clean. No noise from the corridor or the street. a nice pool with a good view of the sea. Breakfast buffet had a wide choice and good quality.

    Many members of staff spoke no English or Spanish at all, even to the point of not even understanding a room number. Not really anything nearby, no beach, no restaurants and not even an atm.

    Perfect location and view

    Noisy (bad sound isolation between rooms)

    Very good

    This hotel is central, food is excellent, a very nice swimming pool in front of the sea.

    This hotel is ranked 5 stars but frankly should have 3 maximum. 45 minutes minimum to receive a Club-Sandwich at the pool, a training room with bad equipements, any request to the staff executed with delay and without smile. I complain to the Manager in charge one or two times; he did his best but frankly, General Manager is either very bad or they should review their staff and explain them that they are working in a hotel where ghests can have requests. For those, who are used to 5 stars hotel in Europe, this hotel is definitively not to be recommenced.

    The breakfast and that the room was big.

    However on seaside, no direct access to the beach. The swimming pool and the jacuzzi was cold.

    nice hotel, near the city center, good breakfast, friendly staff

    in my opinion this hotel deserves four stars, a small pool

    Superb

    - We stayed at the Vila Gale after changing our hotel from the original Pelourinho based hotel we had originally booked. The hotel was defintely upscale as well as clean and comfortable. - Given our comparison with the Pelourinho based hotel, the value for money was definitely high. - It was a 15 minute walk away from the Cristo Morro and the Ondina Beach. - It was a short taxi ride away from Rio Vermelho which is the more happening night life part of town.

    - None

    The location was excellent. Very convenient to the heart of downtown Salvador while also overlooking a breathtakingly beautiful bluff, this hotel was tops.

    Localization of the Hotel; sea view;

    Hotel staff didn't pick up the phone. Breakfast room was a mess after 9:30 A.M.; booked the larger room with sea viwe but two of my windows didn't close. Ok the wind was from the sea but this isn't aceptable on a 5 star hotel.

    I loved the view from our room and also the breakfast buffet had a good selection of various dishes and the staff working the breakfast buffet were all very pleasant.

    Housekeeping was not the best..when I walked on the floor with bare feet they picked up dirt..also one day we left the green light on to clean the room, returned some 12 hours later very tired and the room has not been cleaned. The explanation was that the cleaning staff saw the light and just thought it was red. Anyway, the room was cleaned somewhat about 10pm while we had to wait in the lobby. Please..even an apology and an offer or a drink while we had to wait!!

    The Ocean view. The availability of taxis. Good sound-proofing between rooms. The suite was ample. The cleaning staff is very nice and friendly, although inefficient. No sound of traffic as there isn't any nearby.

    The hotel looks like it was "modern" in the 70's but never maintained or brought up-to-date since. Perfect fit in Eastern Europe before the fall of the Berlin Wall. The floor in the room was always dusty, the bathroom never fully cleaned. The couch had dilapidated springs and dirty upholstery. Towels are worn-out, pillows hard. As the air-conditioning was weak, everything remained humid in the closet. To get wi-fi to work in the room, we had to insist in order to be told the whole connection procedure, and that only in Portuguese ( very few among the staff speak anything else) and you have to pay for it. The pool area is cramped and austere.The restaurant has the "charm"of a cafeteria, a limited choice at midday,only buffet at night.

    The hotel is located in a nice area of town, but the noise from building workers in the region is horrendous all day long.

    The swimming pool area is very small and inadequate to attend so many guests. I only had one dinner there, and I did not like the experience at all (poor food selection, lots of dishes missing from the trays (self-service), deserts were nasty even to look at at!). Internet is a joke.
